Being at the beach you know you'll pay extra for the food, but compared to normal Spanish prices and the rude service.. I'd choose another place. Food what was served was decent.

The food & drink was perfectly acceptable, the tacos were tasty but very expensive, but to be expected given the location. Our bill came to 27 euros for one tapa dish, 2 wines & 2 small beers. I remember checking the bill, but when we...More

Wonderful little spot on the beach. We had two tapas (Pan Tomate & Patatas Bravas) and a few beers. Reasonably priced considering we're tourists right on the beach. The staff were really friendly and provided english menus upon request.

Overpriced, bad quality, very slow service. We went there or an organized group dinner with a fixed price (even though already overpriced), and we ended up paying almost double what we had initially agreed on. The beers they served were flat and sometimes warm since...More

It was a beautiful day in early spring and we couldn't resist eating at this cafe on the beach. Two of us had tuna burgers, which were very good. The prices were a bit higher than off the beach, but you are paying for eating...More

Right on the beach, a fantastic place to take time out from the sun under an umbrella and enjoy a cold beer and some food. I had the Asian salad which was yummy, and interesting combination of flavours and textures - with seaweed included! Only...More

We stumbled upon this cafe while walking along the beach. It was quite a find! The staff was really nice and the grilled octopus and ceviche are both fantastic. In fact we loved it so much we went back two more times during our holiday.

Got a table inside for Sunday lunch about 3.30, having failed to find any capacity in the Port Olimpic. Hottest day of the year so far, but a cool sea breeze meant sitting outside once the sun went round was too cold. Service friendly and...More

Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area
can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging
over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each
other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing
games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away,
Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line
the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed
sand structures making this the most visited beach in

The restaurant is decorated with retro touches and a nod towards the 1970s, which gives it a welcoming feel day and night. Sal Café’s size allows it to cater large events, for more than 250 people. It is open all year round and can organise breakfasts, lunches, dinners and any other events for both corporate and private celebrations.
